Chelice Rogers | 28 comments So I know we’re all adding The Other People to our February TBR lists, but thought it would be fun to share any other books we plan on reading next month.

Could end up with a few buddy reads or simply just finding people with similar tastes.

Mine is

The Chalk Man by C J Tudor
Anger is an Enemy by John Lyndon
We Were On A Break by Lindsey Kelk
I Found You by Lisa Jewel
The Missing by C L Taylor
The Escape by C L Taylor
The Shining by Stephen King

I found myself kind of getting into a rut with only reading popular Thrillers which I love but I’ve set myself some goals to expand my reading habits and branch out into different genres.

If anyone has any of these on their TBR feel free to message me about buddy reads. Also, would love your recommendations on other genre books I might like.

ReadAlongWithSue | 56 comments Great post 😁

I’m planning on reading

What It Seems by Emily Bleeker

Little Friends by Jane Shemilt

Then She Vanishes by Claire Douglas

Strangers by C.L. Taylor

And hopefully

Girls on the Verge by Sharon Biggs Waller

message 5: by Chelice (new)

Chelice Rogers | 28 comments Daisy I would definitely be up for doing a buddy read for The Death Of Mrs Westaway. It’s been on my to read list for ages. Haven’t bought a copy yet and probably won’t have the time to read it in February as I’m already being pretty optimistic with my TBR considering I’m due a baby slap bang in the middle of the month, but if you still haven’t read it by March, drop me a message and we can buddy read it ☺️

message 6: by Leigh (new)

Leigh (leigholive) | 32 comments I would be up for reading The Death of Mrs Westaway in March :). It’s been on my TBR and would be cool to read it with some people!!!

My February TBR might be:
- Red, White & Royal Blue
- Daisy Jones & The Six
- Imaginary Friend (probably leading into March)

message 7: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 6 comments I’ve had The Death of Mrs. Westaway on my TBR for a while now. Maybe I’ll finally have an excuse to finally get to it.

My current TBR for February is looking like...

The Other People (of course)
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
Sadie by Courtney Summers

I’m still a little bit knew to ready so I don’t usually get anymore than 3-4ish books a month sometimes only 1. But we can hope February will be a good month if reading for me.

message 8: by Chelice (new)

Chelice Rogers | 28 comments Oh this is cool then, seems a few of us are up for The death of Mrs Westaway. If everyone who does want to take part in a buddy read of it. Feel free to message me and we could set up a thread on here at the end of feb ☺️

Red White and Royal Blue has been on my shelf for ages! I’ve never done a buddy read before and honesty don’t even know how they work, but I’m down for a buddy read if you are!

message 21: by Karls (new)

Karls D. A. (hyuknice) | 3 comments my current tbr as of right now, subject to change according to my mood lol:

As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks The Vanishing Season (The Collector, #4) by Dot Hutchison Immunity (Contagion, #2) by Erin Bowman Little Heaven by Nick Cutter The Stand by Stephen King It by Stephen King Wilde Intent (Ashcroft Academy, #2) by K.M. Charron Unbound by Shawn Speakman

in no particular order, though the two King books in there are mostly a maaaaybe kind of thing, i've been reading The Stand for about three years now... so i have to start it all over again, the size of both books is... daunting

good luck to everyone! may you have a good reading month (:

message 22: by Cameron (new)

Cameron (icedragon6421) I'm not a mood reader, and on average read 15 books+ a month so I plan, basically, my whole reading month in advance. So my TBR is long AF, so sorry in advance..:

Mr. Gum and the Power Crystals by Andy Stanton.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan.
Lock Every Door by Riley Sager.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness.
The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth.
Bunny by Mona Awad.
Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer.
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis.
Mr. Gum and the Dancing Bear by Andy Stanton.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han.
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead.
A Shiver of Snow and Sky by Lisa Lueddecke.
A Whole New World: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell.
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan.
The Other People by C. J. Tudor.
Mythos by Stephen Fry.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater.
Step Sister by Jeniffer Donnelly.
A Storm of Swords 1: Steel and Blood by George R. R. Martin.

I'm also planning on taking out of the library; 'Turn of the Key' by Ruth Ware because I recently read 'The Death of Mrs. Westaway' and 'The Taking of Annie Thorne' by C. J. Tudor because as much as I'm obviously going to be reading 'The Other People' I didn't enjoy the 'The Chalk Man' so I want to read Tudor's other 2 books to make a final decision on whether or not her future books are for me.

Obviously planning on reading so many books, I'm not going to get to them all, but a TBR is what you're planning to read so this is what I hope to get to.

message 23: by Kelly (new)

Kelly | 6 comments Thinking I’ll be able to get to:
The haunting of hill house

Mary (marybeougherauthor) | 5 comments I have a TBR shelf on my profile. It changes all the time, so... that’s probably the best place to see what I’m going to read.

message 38: by Marisa (new)

Marisa (yxaj) | 1 comments I'm participating in Blackathon next month (and contemporaryathon, but that's less "active" in my mind), so my list is Black authors and/or Black characters:

Becoming by Michelle Obama
The Deep by Rivers Solomon
Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
How Long 'til Black Future Month? by N.K. Jemisin
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Learning to Breathe by Janice Lynn Mather
Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds

Pet by Akwaeke Emezi
The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai
Slay by Brittney Morris
The Stars and the Blackness Between Them by Junauda Petrus
Tight by Torrey Maldonado

I'm really excited to read all of these because some of them have been on my TBR for a while. I'm also surprised that almost all of these books are shorter than books I usually read, and I wonder if it's correlated with the author's identity.

message 39: by Irene (new)

Irene (raenne) | 6 comments I'd like to read The Wives by Tarryn Fisher and Regretting You by Colleen Hoover. Hopefully I'll be in the mood for Bright Side by Kim Holden as well, but that's all I've got planned :)
